Hi, while watching to movies in .avi or .mkv format from USB, original format (16:9) is not mantained, ex, rings seems eggs.
i tried different settings from configuration, as 16:9, 14:9, full screen, etc, but it seems this options have no effect during USB play.
the "format" key on remote control switch from image full screen to a very very very small image, but correct shapes (rings are not eggs).
mkv and avi movies are displayed correctly on pc.

can you please advise me on solving this issue ?

Thank you,

Giorgio

I'm afraid you're not the only one having aspect ratio issues.
I get replies from philips that this is "normal".

Have a look here!

Hi, thanks a lot for your reply!
i don't agree about the "normal" behaviour, since movies are correctly displayed on other brand devices..
anyway, thank you very much for the answer!

42FPL3527H has the same "problem", IMHO that should't be.
If the mkv or avi source is not HD is impossible to get correct display aspect.

You could always buy a cheap Salora 22LED7000T, like I did for the bedroom.
Although this HD TV is not called a "smart" TV, it is in fact smart enough to play 4:3 AVI files with the correct aspect ratio on its 16:9 screen!
It even switches to correct aspect ratio automatically, if desired.

Tip for Philips: Perhaps Philips can copy this part of the Salora FW code to make Philips TV's just as smart!
